talk about the san francisco 49ers quarterback. his name is colin kaepernick, he's sort of this accidental quarterback who kisses his biceps and praises god. here's joe carter. >> colin, we believe has the hot hand and we'll go with colin. >> at the time, jim harbaugh's decision seemed very risky. 11 games into the season, he benched his veteran quarterback and placed the weight of a franchise on the shoulders of a player unknown to many outside san francisco. the move was bold, but it worked. and this team hasn't looked back since. >> what he's accomplished, what he's done, we're so happy for his success. and, you know, the kind of young man that his parents raised his family, his hometown, his high school coaches and college coaches. >> this boom or bust project has turned into one of the nfl's biggest play makers. is what his teammates began to buy into, as well. >> he wants to be successful. he wants to be great. >> he says i just want to play. i want to play. i want my opportunity. i can see the fire in his eyes. he just wanted to prove what he can do. >> maybe he doesn't r

times, including 5 of the last 6, which means start with the quarterbacks, you have colin kaepernick for san francisco, joe flacco for baltimore, they have great postseasons, so whoever looks like that guy early, luckily will be that guy at the end with his fingerprints on the lombardi trophy. >> interesting. let's turn now for a minute. to baltimore. is everyone putting aside what happened in atlanta after the super bowl? >> they probably are putting that aside. i hate ray lewis' dance, do you like that dance? >> no, it's horrible. but i like ray lewis. >> wait a minute, what happened to -- no, i hate the dance. >> i'm going to get into that. ray lewis is one of the most liked persons in the nfl by his piers, except for quarterbacks. i had a 45-minute interview with ray lewis back in october. the thing that came across quickly. very sincere, very inspirational, he told me before he announced his retirement, he wants to spend the rest of his life telling young people his mistakes so they can't make the same mistakes. >> do you think he's a changed man? >> i'm convinced he is, from what h

sort of looking at this game as one where joe flacco and colin kaepernick will put the ball in the air. the ravens have to. that's their m.o. they throw it down the field. ray rice probably won't run a the ball a lot but he should be a big part of catching the football. when it comes to the san francisco 49ers, with kaepernick in there in the playoffs, i think their average is 286 yards roughly running the football. i'd expect the 49ers to run it. i expect the ravens to try and put it down the field. and something's going to happen in this game. i promise you. when we do this broadcast worldwide to 146 countries, they're going to be talking about it all around the world saying that was amazing. there's always something that happens in the game. >> all right. interesting. so let's talk about your team, the redskins, and rg3. we saw that terrible injury of robert griffin iii in the playoff loss to seattle and many people harken that back to your career-ending leg injury in 1985, which is still very, very hard to watch. was it worth it? is there's a lot of concern about this. was it worth

is now the jimmy hoffa of the nfl. we've not heard from this guy because a guy named colin kaepernick's got in there and done the job. and john harbaugh came out and one of his best friends in the nfl is cam cameron, his offensive coordinator, he whacked him in december because he wasn't getting the job done. bring in the new offensive coordinator. it's all about results with these guys. they're very, very particular and they want it done their way. >> lamar, i want to ask you about something else. do you care to comment on this, yes or no? are you good with it? >> i'll definitely comment on it, for sure. so one of the things that i believe is when you look at the history of these two brothers, they grew up michigan men. you see the way their team plays. they play hard, they play physical and they've run the football in a day where now you have 5,000-yard passers, guys throwing the ball all over the place. they have old-school defense and hard hitting. you see it in the way the teams play the game. >> lamar, you've been having a good time because your voice is shot. i want

vulnerable too. you have on the other side, colin kaepernick, he's even younger, much more on the idea of robert griffin iii. a guy who is mobile. he can throw the ball like a fastball pitcher. that combination of a great arm and that mobility. there's this new style of quarterback in the nfl, and there's a question, the super bowl is really being seen as a referendum. how well can that work? will that be in vogue in the coming years, or is it the kind of thing where these guys, it's a gimmick. we'll see a little bit of that today. >> rachel nichols have a great time down there in new orleans. >> the boy scouts of america could decide to lift its ban on gaye members as soon as tomorrow. the group holds its executive meeting this week in texas, where officials may vote to allow whether to allow openly gaye scout leaders. rick perry of texas says there's no reason to change the ban. >> scouting is about teaching a substantial amount of life lessons, sexuality is not one of them. it never has been, does not need to be. >> he's a former eagle scout and spoke yesterday before a statewi

big, strong kid. obviously a great arm. and just playing really well right now. colin kaepernick, that's really interesting. the 49ers have -- they have really done a good job, kind of honing his throwing motion but at times letting him be an athlete and running these different options. so that's good for football. great for a super bowl. and i tell you, i bet the ravens' defensive coach is a little concerned. two weeks for the 49ers with this quarterback who has started, what, just ten games? you know, what new things they might put in -- >> not a lot of film on him. >> using his athleticism. and can he show the composure and the confidence that he's played in these other playoff games here in the biggest game of all. >> archie said the toughest thing about watching that game is knowing all the cameras are on you, just waiting to see, are you rooting for one son more than the other? >> he's been a treasure, archie has, to the game and to the city, obviously. still to come, we're joined by a couple guys who know what it's like to play in the super bowl. cris collinsworth played in a coup
